This trilogy tells the story of Robert the Bruce and how, tutored and encouraged by the heroic William Wallace,he determined to continue the fight for an independent Scotland, sustained by a passionate love for his land. Nigel Tranter succeeds admirably in bringing the story of Robert I - Scotland's greatest King - to life. Not only is his historical research near flawless, but the book is graced by that indisputable mark of a great story teller the reader is wholly absorbed into the world of the Bruce and his friends. Tranter also manages to draw a whole mixture of feelings from his readers - love, hatred, admiration and even that strange mixture of respect and disgust for Edward I that Bruce himself is said to have harbored. Nigel Tranter he is one of Scotland's most prolific and respected writers. He has an amazingly broad grip of Scottish history' ? He is an accomplished writer of compelling and unforgettable historical novels' With his imaginative dialogue, he provides a voice for Scotland's heroes Scotland 'Tranter's popularity lies in his knack of making historical events immediate and exciting. These audio books are very amazing story tale with nice pace of thoughts and free flow of story line. This audio book is nice story telling style. I was most certainly not disappointed.

great book but irritating music between chapters and sound effect. not needed at all and spoils it
The problem Gary wrote about in his review on July 5,2009 still exists on August 26, 2010. I am told," no estimated time as to when an Audio Bug will be fixed". I am not holding my breath. I am very disappointed.

I was looking forward to listening to the 1st of the Trilogy but I could only download 2 chapters, what appears to be the 1st chapter of Trilogy 1 and the second [chapter of Trilogy 1] was in fact the 1st chapter of Trilogy 3 - would be interested to know if anyone has managed to receive the full Trilogy 1 book - anyway I will let you know what I think about it when I get to listen to it...
